How can I get the menus in Microsoft Office 2007 to be in English instead of Japanese? 

by on December 31, 2009

Q: I just got a new laptop in Japan and it has Microsoft Office 2007 (in Japanese). I upgraded to windows 7 ultimate to get menus in English which helps a lot. I can go to start/ programs/ microsoft2007/ microsoft 2007 toolbox / change language. I clicked on English and pushed “Okay” but when I go into Microsoft Office 2007 nothing seems to have changed. I want the menus in English.

I go back to the language options and the Japanese is there again (the computer automatically put it back in by itself) so I deleted all languages and only had English in the possible options but the same thing happens when I go into Microsoft Office it shows Japanese menus.

I am new to computers and this one is now half and half (my kanji reading isn’t so great) so any help that I can get would be much appreciated.

PayPal Multiple User Access 

by on December 31, 2009

Q: I have a business and we really need to be able to have multiple users logged into PayPal at the same time running virtual terminal. The problem is when one person logs into PayPal the person who is already logged in gets kicked out. Is there a way to make it so multiple people can be logged in at the same time?

A: First we need to make sure that everyone understands that associating different email addresses with your PayPal account has nothing to do with setting up Mutli-User Access (that is the term PayPal gives to the ability to have multiple users logged into the same account at the same time). So if you have paypal@somedomain.com and billing@somedomain.com or even paypal@someotherdomain.com associated with your PayPal account so that you can receive money if it is sent to those email addresses then that has nothing to do with actually getting multiple users setup so they can work in PayPal at the same time.
